Real Cowboys by Kate Hoefler- ESSENTIAL

Hoefler, Kate. Real Cowboys, PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016. $16.99. 

Giving insight into how “real” cowboys spend their days, this picture book is full of details. In essence, real cowboys are respectful, hard working, and devoted. They have kind souls and do their jobs well. I also loved that it states that cowboys are many different colors of the earth and that “ Real cowboys are girls, too.” 

This is essentially a poem in picture book format and it’s outstanding. The pictures are fabulous, the message is on point, and the text is full of imagery. I was very pleasantly surprised by this unassuming treat of a book.
